Citigas are experienced domestic and commercial Renewables engineers. Citigas can install an air, or ground, source heat pump at your home and commercial premises.
Air source heat pumps absorb heat from the outside air. This heat can then be used to heat radiators, underfloor heating systems, or warm air convectors and hot water in your home.
An air source heat pump extracts heat from the outside air in the same way that a fridge extracts heat from its inside. It can get heat from the air even when the temperature is as low as -15° C. Heat pumps have some impact on the environment as they need electricity to run – which you could generate with a photovoltaic panel, but the heat they extract from the air is constantly being renewed naturally.
In our view the best application for this technology is in new build or renovated homes or business premises where the buildings insulation levels are to current Building Regulations so that heat loss is minimised.
